Burl's Creek is a 350 acre park facility located 16 km north of Barrie, Ontario with easy access to both Highway 11 and the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport. The park has been in operation for the last 25 years and successfully hosts a number of annual outdoor events, the biggest of which is the Barrie Automotive Flea Market with an average attendance of over 50,000 people.
Fields: Burl's Creek has five main activity fields that are accessible by graded 30-foot wide gravel roads that can accommodate heavy transport vehicles. The fields are completely open and grass-covered and are suitable for large sporting or entertainment events. Four main 32 foot wide entrance/exit gates regulate traffic flow.
Buildings: Burl's Creek sound infrastructure ensures that everything is in place to support a multitude of different types of events. An on site office building is available for use, complete with phone/fax/modern lines and admission kiosks. Four additional outbuildings strategically placed near the front gates and outer perimeter of the park can be used to house security, emergency medical personal and instrumental staff.
Emergency Services: Burl's Creek's 25 years of experience in hosting large-scale events has led to an emergency plan being put into place to deal with foreseeable crisis situations. A separate access road runs along the back of the property to ensure that emergency personnel can easily access any part of the site if the need arises while additional gates are arranged around the site to allow for quick access. The perimeter of the property is outlined by seven foot high chain link fence. In addition, a fire hydrant system is in place throughout the park.
Utilities and Parking: Burl's Creek has 120/240 volt single phase hydro service available on-site. There is an ample supply of fully certified drinking water on site. Parking fields are located directly across the township line from the site's main gate and can easily accommodate 20,000 vehicles. Proximity to Highway 11 and a three lane system ensures that staff can park between 1500 and 1700 vehicles per hour.
Food Concession Stands: Eight permanent turn-key food concession stands can either be rented for use or run by Burl's Creek for an event. During Burl's Creek events the stands serve a variety of foods including vegetarian meals.
Garbage and Sanitary Facilities: Burl's Creek has a garbage removal system in place that is available for an additional charge. Groups renting the property are also free to make their own arrangements for garbage removal if they so wish.
Burl's Creek has outdoor washroom facilities set up on-site that form a ring around the main activity fields of the park. In addition, an indoor comfort station is available with hot and cold running water and rest rooms.
Signage: The facility has frontage along Highway 11 with a large illuminated sign that can be used to advertise events. In addition, the highway frontage allows for significant space that can be used to erect event sponsorship banners and signage.
Camping: Burl's Creek has a designated on-site camping area that is primarily wooded. Its 1000 sites are unserviced, however there is a comfort station with public showers and rest rooms and an ample supply of certified drinking water. Water-fill and dump station is available for recreational vehicles.
Pit Area: The park area is equipped with a pit area that has been specifically designed to hold Moto Cross, ATV races and Truck and Tractor Pulls. Burl's Creek has all the zoning in place to permit motorized vehicle racing.
